    Sage dropped the price of BASS II from $600 to $390. Good time to get one.

    Looking forward to the refresh one with Konnetic HD.

    Have you heard anything about a new bass rod?
    Iíve seen the ads for the new Sage X, but nothing on a new bass rod

    New color Sage X is already on Sage's lineup.

    Haven't heart anything about the new bass rod. I guess it would be announced soon since the old Bass II rod is on clearance.

    I'm sure they will be using super high performance HD paint too.

    Have a Bass II Bluegill, 230 weight, with an Abel Super 6N, Love it! Throws small bluegill poppers and larger bass bugs like a cannon and 7' 11" works well on small rivers and streams with lots of cover. Can't imagine a smallmouth it couldn't handle. Also use it as streamer rod for trout, again great, will man-handle a good brown no problem. Can't throw heavy streamers as well as bugs but that's the fault of my timing.

    Fishing for muskies is a lot of work. So far, no takes. I plan fishing for them this August and Sept so we will see. I think the Sage 330 grain is plenty for most muskie. Many I catch are between 28 and 34 inches. Even a 40 incher should be no problem unless it dives into weeds. So I think the Sage 330 LM bass rod would work OK for muskies. I also have a 10 wt st. Croix as a backup. More later. SR

    More info: youngest son has a 290gr 1st gen, he loved it primarily as a Trout streamer rod but used for smallmouth and Largemouth too. Reason I got the 230.....well, he wanted a 230 too and got one a few weeks back, said they seemed to be getting a little scarce...should think the 330 would handle one of those Bigmouth's that eat basketballs
